Ordinance will allow speed cameras in residential neighborhoods

At last week’s meeting, the City Council introduced an ordinance allowing speed cameras in residential neighborhoods.
In 2010, the Mayor and Council adopted a speed monitoring system for use in school zones and within ½ mile of the University of Maryland as authorized by §21-809 of the Transportation Article of the Annotated Code of Maryland.
In the 2021 legislative session, §21-809 was amended to allow Prince George’s County municipalities the ability to locate speed cameras on highways in residential districts with a maximum posted speed limit of 35 miles per hour. Ordinance 21-O-11 would include this option in the City Code.
You can see more about the ordinance here on City’s website.
The Council will hold a public hearing on the proposed ordinance at next Tuesday’s City Council regular meeting.
